Hi All!!

New here, sorry if this is in the wrong place (figured it'd be the best) but I have a bit of an interesting situation right now, and being relatively new have searched through but haven't found much. Heres what:

Recently installed Ubuntu 16.04lts (upgraded to18.04lts if that matters)
during this install I got a couple of issues
I either:
-Could not install the boot manager, or
- ended up installing this on my windows 7 boot disc (where it currently resides until I can recover. I was an idiot and didn't back up before I did this)
2 issues: I don't have my windows 7 install (long story) and I have files I need in that OS. like NEED not just "need cause whatever".
Now, I've tried booting to windows 7 but what happens is that I end up getting a blank screen for about 1-2 seconds and then it takes me back to the boot loader with Ubuntu. All help and suggestions would be awesome, appreciated, and I am willing to try as long as I'm not wiping.

Sorry for the list of instructions but I hope it helps info wise.
